Female going to a salon for waxing

Q: I am getting married in two weeks inshallah. I ask for your duas of barakah and happiness inshallah.

I suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome. My main issue is high testosterone in my body. Medication helps but does little to control excessive hair growth. Most woman have hair on their legs, however with pcos it is excessive thick hair and is like that all over the body. This is no an exaggeration. I am hairier than my father. I even have thick long hair on my lower back and the private area just below that. I do manage my hair through waxing but never bothered hard to reach areas since I was not married and was not lawful to remove.

My question is, can I go to a salon where there is no men and have waxing done professionally as it is excessive growth and I cannot manage it on my own. Even the areas I can access I have painful in growns and acne. Leaving the hair and saying that my husband wont mind, I think is incorrect because this is no way near normal. Even shaving is painful for me and leaves lots of acne and again, it is hard for me to access. 

A: Try your best to do the waxing yourself. This is not a difficult thing. If you place mirrors in the right positions you can easily see all the areas of your body.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
